oh, and i think you arent allowed to copy it, so it might have copy protection,
I heard folks in another thread similar to this that they use a program called Alcohol 120% or something along those lines. Everyone who had experience with the program said it copies the files directly and exactly the way they are on the primary cd. Meaning, it's the ideal copying program. Many said they made a copy of XP, and tucked it away for safe keeping. I considered this as well... but seeing as though my garage bill will be reaching upwards of a grand, I can't justify buying that program now.
